. it was also a test of the media and many outlets failed. it was a chaotic environment where information was at a premium because the nation was scared and needing to know if the danger was ongoing and where it had come from and thus how to contextualize it. in those moments the egoes of media people come out wanting to show how connected we are, that we can get the information first or how smart we are we can make the big assertion first. in environments like that when the public and authorities are in a mob mode yelling for a body to attack, media must take extra care to not stoke the wrong flames or tell people of bombs, or connections to foreign terror groups that aren't real. in these moments we risk yelling fire in a crowded theater because incorrect information can cause a dangerous stampede toward an innocent person or group of people or sew fear that makes us think the world is more dangerous than it actually is. there is a desire within media to be first with big news, with developments that mark the closing of a chapter, with items that will change how swirn seve sees and repo
in an suburban environment. as promised to d.c. we go and pete williams who has not had a lick of rest since this next round started. again, pete, when you look at the calendar, 5:30 p.m. eastern we get the imagery. we both knew at the time the web has a funny way of taking off on its own. this was crowd sourcing and investigation by the fbi really first of its kind getting the imagery out, letting everybody look at it, sink in, and then we were off on these various and violent tangents that lacked a specific tie. i think it was close to 4:00 a.m. when you came on the air and said we now have kind of every reason. to believe these are tied together. >> yes, and let's go back to last night too. everything about this is extraordinary. the response by the public to the fbi's website was the largest single volume of visits to the fbi's website ever. it set a record. nearly crashed the system. a huge volume of tips came in. and they were names that frankly a lot of them were wrong, of course, but some were right. and the fbi, i'm told, had already been sort of looking a at these two based on some
in a civilian environment, it looks huge, but can we get a perspective on the size and power of the bomb? how we might compare to to those in a war zone, ieds or military ordnance? >> that's the analysis going on now. the people i've talked to who are doing that seat of the pants comparison say it's not huge. of course, it does look huge. over 100 people injured, that seems frightening. it is, but they were right around it, they were very close to it, crowded around, which you assume is the reason the devices were placed there. it does seem they were intended to cause a maximum amount of casualties, injuries and deaths. where they were placed, when they were placed, and how they were constructed with the additional shrapnel to amp up the injuries. >> pete, over the course of the day, obviously you get a lot of conflicting reports, some of which are not true, but we heard at least some tentative reports about the strategic placement of the devices, whether they might have been put in trash cans or mailboxes or parcels leaned up against the building. do we have anything firm on that? >> no. we're
are able to say whether they're small parts of metal placed there intentionally or part of the environment. >> do you think the people that are in critical condition, they are okay? >> they are not looking okay. it's not what critical means. so, it's really too early to say. to say how everybody is. >> how long will this process continue critical? within hours or -- >> a number of patients require repeat operations tomorrow and serial operations over the next couple days. a lot of the injuries are combined. they are combined with soft tissue and vascular injuries. they have to be approached in a stepwise factor. >> how about eardrums? are you seeing shattered eardrums in close proximity to the explosion? >> we have seen at least one. it's not uncommon with a blast injury. one of the things on my to-do list for tonight for me and the residents is go back around, it can be hard sometimes particularly if people are being rushed to the operate room to get a good cham and repeat all the exams. >> can you give us more information on the hometown? >> no, i'm sorry, i can't. impossible to give tha
or placed there intentionally or part of the environment. >> do you think that most people are critical at this point? [ inaudible ] it's really too early to say. >> how long will this process continue to be critical? hours? >> the younger patients will require operations tomorrow and serial operations over days. a lot of the injuries are soft tissue and vascular injuries and they have to be approached in kind of step-by-step. >> how about ear drums, are you seeing any shattered ear drums? >> we have seen at least one. for me and the residents to actually go right back around, particularly the people, in the operating room to get a good exam. >> can you give us more information on ages, hometowns? >> no, i'm sorry, i can't, actually. >> can you talk about the amput amputees, how many? >> i can't. i mean, a couple. [ question inaudible ] >> i don't know. there were no pediatric patients. the old evidence person i took care of was 71. >> you're a surgeon but still -- >> i mean, it's just depressing. we see accidents all the time, it's just depressing. >> in the course of your career, have
something? >> well, again, in that environment, you can wear a hat, a hood, sunglasses. but this person is likely one minded. they wanted to get in, plant the devices and be gone. even though they may be trying to duck and hide from cameras that are on the wall, there will be cameras in banks, convenience stores and thousands of people with iphones and a devices taking pictures. that's why law enforcement is at airports, bus terminals, train stations, asking people if you have pictures, especially taken directly before the explosion. share those with law enforcement. the bomber's picture is there. we just have to pick it out among the thousands of pictures that exist. >> all right. thank you for your time. still ahead, another live report from boston on the ground where the investigation stands right now. plus, we have new video coming in of the bombing of the point of view of a runner. we'll show you that video. er ] s joe woods' first day of work. and his new boss told him two things -- cook what you love, and save your money. joe doesn't know it yet, but he'll work his way up from bu
they've imposed this really a unpresdenned security environment in the boston area this morning. >> is it a new threat that they're trying to figure out? is that -- a new threat come in in the last few hours and that's what explains it or just finding this third relative or potentially? >> yeah, i'm not sure that i'd call them a threat. just a concern that they may have had accomplices and whether those accomplices have made threats, i don't know. but i believe that's the -- i believe that's part of the answer why they're concerned here. although i have to point out, we heard conflicting information about this. but several people who are in a position to know and are good sources say that that is the concern. now, as for the two brothers. i think you've discussed this some. the family came to the u.s., we're told, in 2002 or 2003 and claimed asylum. the father had been some kind of public official in either chechnya or kyrgyzstan. either a prosecutor or a police officer. so, the brothers have been here for a decade. one was born in russia. one is born in kyrgyzstan. and, so, the
yan. tla there's been tough military action. you flee that environment. you come into the united states. you go to school. you get a scholarship. you have friends. but somewhere in that leadened, deadened heart, head of yours, it's still not good enough. there is a cause that's more important, not survival, and i'm not sure we'll ever be able to comprehend that. we need to try because it may give us potential to identify other people. here we have a rather remarkable journey these two young men took. a journey literally millions have taken. and they've contributed to the united states. their contribution was death and destruction. of innocent people. we may never understand, rationalize, how. >> as you reference the uncle who pleaded with his nephew, dzhokhar, give yourself up, give yourself up. and of course that is the fervent wish of law enforcement officials for a number of reasons. one is for the survival of dzhokhar tsarnaev because there is a manhunt for him and he will not escape that network of law enforcement at some point. this will not come to a good end. but also fro
that come from conflict situations come into peaceful environments, and all of a sudden, and they're not given appropriate psychological pair, can also have enormous problems assimilating in a very different culture. >> and in terms of these two individuals living in cambridge, massachusetts, having come from chechnya, any thoughts there, why cambridge? why they've been living here together for so many years? why they chose boston? >> well, i think on the east coast that there is a burgeoning, it's by no means as large as europe, of course, the largest population of chechen is in austria, but i think there is a growing group of people along the east coast, in d.c., and in new york, and in boston, and clearly, chechens are also russian speaking, so there is, obviously, a large contingent of russian-speaking people also in boston. and from how i understand it, it seems as though their uncle was already here in the united states, and i think that they had other friends who could help them to settle into the country, and to assimilate, so, often, you choose a place precisely because y
right now. anybody part of that effort who has a capability to engage in a close environment like this certainly is going to be deployed. there could be explosives. you have to assume if there is this individual here, tsarnaev is held up, he may have additional explosives with him. he may be armed with semiautomatic or pistols. you have to assume the whole broad range of force capability. he might have at his disposal. >> don't forget, this is a 19-year-old young man who was really falling the lead, we believe, from all reports of his older brother. his older brother rather than being captured was throwing devices, explosives at authorities and had an ied strapped to him. so they are expecting the worst here. >> and also his desperation would be multiplied by the fact that he has knowledge that he ran over his brother as he escaped and the fact that he had anything to do with the killing of his brother is unimaginable. >> right. >> and now he's alone. obviously guilt-ridden. terrified. >> exhausted. >> yep. >> he may be injured. since monday you can't believe this individual has h
this respect, that watertown is a very, very easy going, very community type of environment. and this community with solidarity and people embracing one another, then dead ghost nothing. residents were frightened and stuck within their homes and didn't have the opportunity to go out and find out except for expressions from people like yourself. >> what is it like to be holed up in your home, unsure if someone is hiding in your basement or backyard. whether somebody is using you as a cover for their attempts to allude authorities. >> i noticed a number of police and military going to homes. >> did they enter your home? >> they did enter my home. >> explain that. what was it like? >> they knocked on the door and explained they were obviously looking for the suspect and with like it check out all of the residence. they checked about 200 different homes. >> right. but specifically your home. >> right. >> how reluctant for to you even open the door? >> not very. because of the situation that happened monday. the citizens of this community embraced the police and the fbi and other members of law enfo
town environment of boston. >> you really couldn't believe it. certainly an eerie sight, alex. yesterday the streets of boston should have been teeming with commuters. there should have been tourists. there should have been people outside enjoying the weather. but instead they were hunkered down. they were staying inside, heeding orders that there was a terrorist, potentially on the loose. about 1 million people ordered to stay inside. to lock their doors. boston and its surrounding suburbs were virtually under siege. a lockdown in the suburbs, a shelter in place order for the city. >> we're asking people to shelter in place. in other words to stay indoors with their doors locked, and not to open the door for anyone other than a properly identified law enforcement officer. >> reporter: it was early friday morning when dzhokhar tsarnaev escaped a police shoot-out in watertown. forcing officials to shut down a 20-block radius, and demanding residents stay indoors for their own safety. >> i've just never seen it this way. i mean, even in the latest hours at night it's never this
of the solution is simple, getting more officers on the streets. >> that rockridge is a target-rich environment. and with police response times not that great and with a shortage of police officers, crime is bound to go up. >> reporter: and the mayor's budget includes funding for additional police officers. and kalb says he would like to see a minimum of 800 from the current number of 640 in the next two years. and as for the shooting, the victim is expected to recover, and the gunman is still at large. a $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest. live in oakland tonight, monte francis, nbc bay area news. >> thank you, monte. >>> in san lorenzo, homicide investigators are at the scene of a suspicious death. the victim is a woman in her 50s who was found at 3:00 this morning lying in a pool of blood in her driveway. a neighbor found her on silver leaf drive near east 14 street. a man who lives a few doors down told us everyone who lives in the neighborhood belongs to a homeowners association, and the area is regularly patrolled by security. the woman's name has not been
of environment for security exchange to not be politicized sooner or later. we know what's going on in check nia. our fbi, our c.i.a. know what's going on in chechnya. when they get information from the russian service, they should look at that information and decide does it actually give them any leads in terms of intelligence inside the united states of america. but they should be reminded where the information is coming from. >> really wonderful insights, thank you very much, thanks, bruce reidel. >>> next in the daily fix, the boston bomb's impact on immigration debate here at home. that perfect spot. a special place we go to smooth out the ripples of the day. it might be off a dock or on a boat. upstream or in the middle of nowhere. wherever it may be, casting a line in the clear, fresh waters of michigan lets us leave anything weighing us down back on shore. our perfect spot is calling. our perfect spot is pure michigan. your trip begins at michigan.org. olay ultra moisture body wash can with more moisturizers than seven bottles of the leading body wash. with ultra moisture your body wash
this extraordinary security environment here in boston and the suburbs. understandable why in water where they believe that he may be holed up. that explains the situation around there. they think they know where he is, but not positive. there is a concern for the last couple of hours that he and his brother may have had accomplices and those accomplices may be at large and could be dangerous. this morning authorities found and disarmed another bomb in the boston area. i say another bomb. i mean a bomb today in the boston area. there is a concern about whether there could be other devices. you put all of those factorsing to and that's the explanation for the unprecedentedly strict security in boston and the suburbs right now. >> when you talk about the motivation and their state of mind and why they did what they did including the attempted robbery of that 7-11, you have got more information on the carjacking that occurred. they took a man at gunpoint for about a half hour. >> right. after the robbery of the 7-11 and after shooting the campus policemen. they carjack and got an suv and hel
words of calm. a day later, how is this sinking in? >> well, i think obviously the city, the environment around the city is still in a state of shock. the city will not be business as usual today. many of the streets around us you can see have been closed off, back bay, the entire area of the finish line is closed off and shut down. but like any city like new york, after september 11th, like any city in this country, people are resilient, we'll go on. >> yesterday was a special day for people outside of boston, can you explain? >> oh, joe. >> you know, the sox play, it's a holiday in boston, actually. >> it's a holiday. >> the sox play in the afternoon. you were there with your son. >> it's a traditional holiday. it's perhaps the greatest day for the city during the course of the year. it's a day when the entire city wears a smile. it's a day when hundreds of thousands of people arrive here from literally around the globe and certainly around the nation to run, first, in the boston marathon, 26 miles in massachusetts, to the boylston finish line. the game concludes just as the middle of
to celebrate that in a family environment in a fun way. other people look at us differently. they look at patriotism as their enemy. they look at inon sense americans as targets. we are in a war here and we've got to deal with it accordingly. >> mayor, if you had to pinpoint some of issues, you bring up some of the difficulties in some of the ways that americans have to grapple with the idea of losing freedom, but also the idea of making sure that you feel secure in any of these areas. we talked to an analyst this morning who pointed out that the largest population of north secaucus former residents have to be in watertown, massachusetts, this is where this is all taking out and you live in a town that's a melting pot and has been for a long time. does that make it more difficult? >> boston area diversity has always been its strength, a large, young, student population, many from foreign countries have been our strength over the past years, over the past many years, but today we are vulnerable from international terrorist organizations that come into our city, come into our area and we
. their concern is autonomy. there are actors within that environment. for them, had this been directly tied to have these two individuals been directly tied to those groups, i would be surprised if they didn't want to claim it. there are anti-american sentiments. host: what surprised you the most as you go through this data? guest: one of the positive surprises was the willingness of the american people and working with law enforcement and department of homeland security in a way similar to the administration strategy for preventing violent extremism. a community-oriented approach that will increase community between -- communication between the community and government, and prevent radicalization from happening in the first place, and if it does occur, allowing the government and community to deal with it in a positive way before a terrorist plot is hatched. 57% of respondents indicated a willingness to work with law enforcement and dhs to establish those relationships ahead of time. positive story. i see a lot of value in a community-oriented approach towards these counter radicalization.
into an environment like this, first, you want to say am i indoors, outdoor, this is an outdoor event. where am i standing? are there trash cans near me? is there a mailbox near me? that can be a someplace where somebody can conceal a device. don't stand there. is there glass around me? get away from that, if stand near a structure that's concrete, steel, brick. even if it's from a distance, the blast wave can shatter all that glass. >> do you need to be thinking about that? >> it's such a weird thing to think about. >> on a day when you're celebrating, you're not thinking about this. >> you should think about this all the time. wherever you go. whether it's a movie theater, the school, the mall. >> is it our new reality? and is it going to get worse? >> i think this is reality and i think that you should do this, it takes a few minutes, any place you go, what do i do if this happens. >> what do you think it does to your psyche? there are some people, i get it, you live your life afraid. like oh my god, something bad's around the corner. living your life that way -- >> most of the time it isn't.
